In a move that could do a lot to enhance the credibility of the emerging breed of object-oriented database vendors, DEC is reportedly considering making an investment in one of their number. According to Computer Systems News, DEC is weighing an investment in Objectivity Inc, the Menlo Park, California company that announced its first product, the Objectivity/DB database management system, at the end of April (CI No 1,418). Objectivity/DB is designed to run under Unix and is aimed primarily at the engineering market. Neither company was prepared to comment, but Objectivity did say that it was seeking investment and outside marketing help. A VMS version of the database is in the works; word is that DEC is looking at a 10% to 15% stake. It has also had talks with rival Versant Object Technology Corp, also Menlo Park: Versant says that there was not compatible agreement.
